Dutch cable operator Essent Kabelcom has selected Lucent Technologies and Telindus to provide it with next-generation optical systems and software to help it deliver Ethernet-over-optical solutions to enterprise customers. Essent hopes the upgrade will help it generate extra revenue from new services such as transparent Ethernet Private Lines and Ethernet Private LAN services, as well as delivering managed IP services using Lucent-supplied technology. Telindus is contracted to deliver, install and test services, and provide ongoing technical support.
